Pros: Looks Good, runs quiet, no problems after 4 years
Cons: None that I've found so far
Other Thoughts: I bought this back in 2011, and I just decided to look at it's price because after 4 years, I figured I might want to get a back up. I'm one of those guys who never shuts his PC down, and I've yet to have a single issue out of my PSU. No noise, no smoking, no weird smells, nothing. It's run great so far, and has shown no signs of trouble at all, after all these years. Has been reliable and worth my purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As far as graphics go, this card is great. It runs every game I have on high settings, but not all of them on very high. The fan is quiet with the only noise being from the air it blows when it picks up speed to cool the card.
Cons: I had 2 issues when installing this card.
1. The card IS huge, like the other review says. I had to take the case off of the card to make it fit in my PC because of one simple screw on a fan was in the way.
2. The card puts out audio through and HDMI port, and it overrode my on-board sound card. I think it's an IRQ or Memory I/O issue, because while the card is plugged in, the on-board card disappeared from the device manager. To fix this, I ordered a new sound card, and everything is fine.
Other Thoughts: If you don't have something that can receive HDMI audio, then be careful when buying this card. Google searches showed that the sound issue is very common with this series.
If you don't have a large case, this also may not be the card for you. It's a biggin.
But, for graphic quality and fps, this card will deliver on those aspects very well.
